English Grammar -- Present Perfect Continuous -- Teaching Ideas 3 -- Pay for English Teachers


In this video we look at a TESOL teaching idea for the Present Perfect Continuous. This tense is the one we use when we want to say what has been happening. The activity in the video is called "Guess what I've been doing?" It is a fun activity that can generate a lot of student talk time. Students each receive a card that has two pieces of information on it, a past activity and a result. Each student has a turn of telling the class the result and the class then has to guess the activity using the Present Perfect Continuous. For example, the past activity on a card is "You have been driving your motorbike in the rain", the result written on the card is "You are all wet. Your clothes are wet". The other students could ask, "Have you been swimming?", "Have you been washing the dog?" The activity could be varied by including some mime.

this unit has thought differnt ways to introduce vocabulary, grammar, functions of the language. They are very usuful for some cases. i will try to use them during my classes specially the patchwork ESA structure, inmy personal opion is very open and easy to manague for my students and i will pay more attention at the engage of each class which is sometimes difficult to manage for meIn this unit I was made aware of what the different acronyms mean that are used in the ESL field. I was also happy to learn that it was not necessary to come from any specific business background in order to be able to teach English in the business world. Another benefit is that my prospects for finding employment are drastically enhanced by being certified to teach business English.
